Transmission over temp?

Hey so I have an 08 Jeep WK Laredo, and for about a year now I have had a reoccurring issue with apparently my transmission. I have read similar posts in which most people say the dash board reads "TRANSMISSION OVER TEMP" and their car also wont start. In my particular situation, that message randomly appears whenever I am driving.

This is kind of how it goes:

1. I am driving, and suddenly my dash reads "TRANSMISSION OVER TEMP"
2. My car does not shut down, but it no longer allows me to accelerate whatsoever.
3. I pull over immediately, shut the car off, and then turn it back on, and all of the sudden the issue is gone and my car drives fine.

Can anybody help me with this, although it doesn't seem like a major issue, I've time and time again realized how unsafe this is. Thanks!
